The Challenges Ahead: Where and How We Will Live?

Where are we, and how do we live today? Tomorrow, will our communities support changing demographics, altered designs, economically integrated neighborhoods?   

These are not idle questions: Over the past century, the way we live has seriously changed.  And, today, forecasts ensure dramatic changes in our future.  

One hundred years ago, 20% of us lived in households of seven or more; today only 1% do. Then, only 5% of us lived alone; now, just a single person occupies 25% of all households. Moreover, we are an aging population with new demands.

How will these demographics drive change, and what steps must we take to ensure our needs? Our 20th century life transformed our communities from small towns to cities and sprawling suburbs. Now we must design for the 21st century. Will new urban planning accommodate new ways of living? Can we live more sustainably? Will we be healthier, happier?  

Join C-3’s panel of experts to understand these trends and help San Diegans prepare policies that can provide us with a forward-looking, livable future. 


Gary London, (President of the London Group Realty Advisors) will cover the demographic trends changing the nature of our households.

Barry Schultz(Senior Counsel at Stutz, Artiano, Shinhoff and Holtz) will discuss approaches to ensure more equitable communities.

Keith Pezzoli, (Professor and Director of Urban Studies and Planning program at UCSD) talks about the improved relationship between the natural and built environments. 

Marco Sessa, (Senior Vice President – Land Development/Residential at Sudberry Properties) will cover the challenges and opportunities to achieve better communities.
